Getting stuck on pieces is something I'm always going through. I think it has a lot to do with making a large quantity of work in a short period of time, the gears stop working and you have to oil up the machine. Something that helps me tremendously is going back to the basics, doing 3 color paintings and putting no limits on the materials you want to use. In this case, gouache, ink and pen. As long as It involves 3 colors. Seems weird, but it always works and gets me out of a bind. Working this way also starts to inspire me to make more limited color pieces and focus more on composition.
